The Pilgrimage of New York

This year the Pilgrimage of New York will be in honor of Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church. Let us admit it, sometimes we forget about Saint Joseph. We pay a lot of attention to other saints and their writings etc., but today we need to reflect on the foster father of Jesus. After all, he is a prominent figure in the life of Jesus. Saint Joseph protected the Christ Child and our Blessed Mother during their travel to Bethlehem and their escape into Egypt. He raised Our Lord Jesus and looked after the Mother of God. Like Mary, Saint Joseph accepted all these things and lived his life for Our Lord, and for us. We all benefit from his love for Jesus and Mary.

On this pilgrimage route, we will be visiting churches named after Saint Joseph. One of these churches, Saint Joseph Church on Monroe Street, will be closing its doors in August due to the Making All Things New initiative from the Archdiocese of New York. Even though this church is closing, it is still important for us to visit this church and all the other churches on this route to show them our appreciation for their many years of service to their communities.

As we walk this pilgrimage route through the streets of Manhattan, let us entrust ourselves to Saint Joseph during this season of Lent. As Catholics, we need to experience our faith while visiting these beautiful churches, and pray for those we encounter during our walk.

Browse our website to learn more about the famous churches you can visit, the saints you will honor and the route you can follow. You can sign up to participate in the pilgrimage (it's free!), and if you wish, you can make a donation to the St. Nicholas Project of Catholic Charities. You will be able to walk at your own pace (and no one will criticize you if at some point you have to drop out and take a subway part of the way!) Please go to http://www.pofnyc.org/register/ to register.

Time: 9:00 am

Place: The Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Address: 701 Ft Washington Ave

For info contact: Jeffrey Carlson

Special Instructions: This is an all day event. We will be walking from St Frances Xavier Cabrini down to The Shrine of St

Dominican Republic Service Mission Trip

This may be one of the most profound experiences you have ever had and a perfect offering for LENT! This will be our 10th visit to the Mission of San Pedro in El Cercado in the mountains of the Dominican Republic. During this trip you will live and work alongside the mission workers helping to do the day to day projects which will include: bringing food and clothing to the poor, reforesting and planting, delivering school supplies to kids in need, resupplying mission resources, helping to beautify buildings via painting, cleaning and more. You will also get an idea of the many other projects that they are involved with.

There are 75 villages in the mountains that the mission caters to. Many of them were devastated when the dictators allowed American Companies to come in and cut down all the trees on the hillsides without reforesting them thus allowing all the farm-able soil to wash into the valley. The missions goals are to help reforest the land, provide agricultural education, build aqueducts for fresh water, latrines for sanitation, build schools for education and help with finding medical care and assistance for the sick.

The mission is run by the Archdiocese of Rockville Center but this is not a religious trip however there is an opportunity for a very spiritual aspect if you wish to use your free time that way.

The trip includes: $980

-Round-trip airfare from NYC to Santo Domingo
-Transportation from Airport to El Cercado and back
-All meals at Mission (very healthy and hearty)
-Private room/with shared bath and showers
-Accommodations at beach-side guesthouse at end of trip
Any leftover funds will be donated to the mission

NOT Included: things you may purchase as trinkets or souvenirs, meals in Santo Domingo & Boca Chica.

Schedule:

Monday: Leave NYC early (6am), arrive DR. Shop for mission supplies then drive to mission ( 4hours)
Tuesday: Visit local market, work on project
Wednesday: Work on various mission projects
Thursday: Work on Mission projects
Friday: Return to Santo Domingo, tour Colonial Zone, have dinner, travel to beach guesthouse
Saturday: Relax at beach club, explore at leisure.
Sunday: Return to NYC by 5pm

Homeless Shelter Volunteer Program


The Homeless Shelter program at Holy Trinity Church is a parish ministry run in conjunction with the Faith Based Emergency Shelter Network in New York City. Every Saturday night, from October 19 through May, we serve a hot meal and provide a bed for up to 20 homeless guests in the Murphy Center. Our guests come to Holy Trinity via private bus transportation and have been screened by a non-profit agency that provides services that connect people with opportunities to enhance their quality of life and transition to permanent housing.

There are volunteer opportunities for set up and cleaning up, cooking a meal, as well as spending the night as a chaperone. If you are interested in any of these positions, and would like to hear more about what the shelter is and what we do, please contact us!
